Moussa: Arabs to adopt unified stance on Mideast conference

Arab countries will adopt a unified stand on the US-sponsored peace conference scheduled for later this year at an Arab foreign ministers' meeting to be held in Cairo, Egypt next week, Arab League chief Amr Moussa said Thursday. Moussa's comments followed a meeting he held in Damascus with Syrian President Bashar Assad, who reiterated that any peace initiative that does not include talks on the occupied Golan Heights "would not be serious" and could not achieve a just peace in the region.
